2003 Dodge Grand Caravan

The 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan didn't change its MO much, as it seemd to be doing everything right.  The same trims and engine options were offered, with the reappareance of the Cargo Van (C/V) this year.  The 3.3-liter, 180-hp V6 came standard on the SE, eL, Sport, and Cargo Van, while the 3.8-liter, 215-hp V6 was standard on the eX and ES.    

New for 2003 is a power sunroof option for the ES only, and standard power liftgate on the eX and ES, a feature highly valued by appreciative moms everywhere.  The AutoStick transmission is discontinued in 2003.  Grand Caravans also offer optional three-zone temperature control to accommodate the three rows of passenger seating.

There is no end to the praise for the 2003 Grand Caravan.  From its wide variety of engine and trim options, to the smooth, quiet ride and car-like driving experience, to the cargo space and energetic engine, this minivan remains popular among owners.  Drivers love the interior comfort and high seating.  Some downsides are the heavy-to-remove third-row seating, wide turn radius, and maneuverability of the long Grand Caravans.  One thing Dodge seems to have addressed is the transmission problems, as complaints of this in the 2003 Grand Caravan are not as abundant as in other years.

My 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan Transmission Is Not Working Properly.

When driving in the country, when I come to a stop at a stop sign, the transmission downshifts hard on the 3/2 downshift. It does not do it while driving in the city.
